Gloom & Doom (and how to fight back)

with one comment

Don’t get too close. It might be catching.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the cure for a dreary rainy cold wet messy weekend is to paint & recover furniture.

To wit: chair, circa 1971. Formerly belonging to a Singer cabinet sewing machine. The machine went kaput (I am death to machinery) but the chair remained, because it is sturdy and comfortable and heavy. It’s made to stick around.

Colors and fabric? Ehhh … Not so much.

No one will ever stop loving harvest gold!

It only took a shopping trip for new canvas fabric and a few cans of spray paint. And a few dozen shots from the staple gun.

Everything else is original. Frame, legs, screws … even the forty-year-old foam padding.

And I love it.

Even the padding.

So fresh! so clean! So few mistakes!
